"Thank you so much for all the hard work you did on this book. I am really enjoying reading it and applying your principles. You wrote this book for me. :-D"

--Alyce Williams, Certified Bookkeeper and Traveling Notary Services

About the Author

<img src="//bit.ly/100NT8T" width="168" height="169" align="left" />
E.T. Barton and Robin Davis met back in 1976, shortly after Robin's "water broke."  That's right, E.T. and Robin are mother and daughter and Robin was all of 5 years old at the time (or at least that's the story Robin's sticking to!).  Both mother and daughter got into bookkeeping shortly after high school, and through the years, they have encouraged each other to begin their own bookkeeping companies.  Since E.T's passion lies in writing, and Robin's lies in bookkeeping, they've decided to team up so that they could share their collective knowledge in a way that is simple and/or entertaining for SBOs and Bookkeepers.

More About the Author

Hi. I'm E.T. Barton - or Erica to my friends. ("Erica from America" when I travel abroad.) Welcome to my world.

What you should know about me... I'm the funniest person I know. (I know... it's so sad, right? There are no funny people in my life. ;-) )

What you should really know about me is that I am actually a writer at heart, but a researcher by profession. As many writers do, we have to enter the work force to "feed our addiction"... our addiction being the written word. I entered the work force via "the family business," which is bookkeeping. However, I hated bookkeeping, so I decided to make it more interesting. I started my own Office Administration Company around the time my daughter was born, and one of the clients I took on happened to be in the Market Financial Feasibility Research Industry. Although the title sucks, the job description was fantastic.

To put it succinctly, a Market Financial Feasibility Researcher is posed a question - usually having to do with how well a business might do should they add some new element - and the Researcher finds out absolutely everything about that topic, does some beta testing, analyzes all results, and then crunches the useful information into a simple report that anyone in any industry would understand.

Because of that fantastic job, I have done research for some of the largest Fortune 500 companies in the United States and sat at tables with some of the most interesting people. I have heard conversations that blew my mind. And while I cannot reveal names due to confidentiality contracts, I can say that I definitely learned a thing or two.

In 2010, I realized I no longer needed to run the business because my writing career had taken off, so I chucked everything and proceeded to drag my family around the world for the next six months. When I returned to my hometown, it was with a new sense of purpose... to take the skills I had learned in the Research Industry and apply them to ANYTHING that interests me. Once I learn something new and have a bigger picture, I put those things into simple terms that will hopefully make my readers laugh and learn something at the same time.

As a result, my books are about a wide variety of topics - from bookkeeping to business growth, publishing to dieting, and soon there will be even more. All of the topics are well researched and painted in a way that will hopefully make you giggle while showing you another side of things. I do not use any industry jargon just because I want things to be understandable for ANYONE an ANY industry.

So that's me... E.T. Barton, Researcher and Writer.

(And just in case you were wondering, I do also write fiction under the name A.J. Clare. That too has my particular flair for the dramatic.)

Again - welcome to my world. I look forward to getting to know you.

Very helpful to organize your thoughts and materials; it's very practical and written in layman's terms so I had no trouble understanding.

This book assumes you are going to use Quickbooks to prepare your financial reports.

This is a very simple, yet profound book for anyone trying to run a small business. The content was very well organized and the step by step process of gathering documents was very helpful. I have been using Quickbooks for two years and your explanations, examples and instructions for setting time saving preferences made it one of this years best purchases for me in business books. Fast easy read, no holds bar approach to getting your papers in order.

I really enjoyed this book. This is well suited for beginners and veterans alike. I got my first bookkeeping job over 20 years ago, and I learned some really good tips on how to streamline my workflow. If you run a small business and don't want to hire someone to do your books, read this book first. It will really help you cut down on the time you spend on the paperwork, so you can get back to growing your business.

I wasn't sure when I purchased this book if it was going to meet expectations, however, I was pleasantly suprised after reading the book and executing quite a few of the ideas. I have converted from Quicken Rent Manager, which is totally user unfriendly and frustrating, to Quickbooks. I was quickly able to transfer my information and get up and running and am stress free with Quickbooks 2013.

The book is a little useful to someone just starting out. The eBook kept referring everything to a blog that is suspended. At the end it states if you bought the ebook you could send an email to have the forms sent to you. It has been well over a month, maybe 2 and still no word. It would have been great to have the rest of the information.

The Contents of this book is helpful but my frustration is that they never send a PDF. I bought this about a month ago.

I don't have a stand alone kindle so toggling back and forth on my computer to reread her suggestions... is an Unnecessary Aggravation since the description clearly states that they will send you a PDF copy. I am a print kinda reader but I wanted to start working on my taxes so I bought the ebook. Why sell the Ebook and make false promises? I would have bought the print first had I known that I wouldn't get a PDF to either read on my nook or to print so I can read it on paper to use as a reference while I worked. So Bottom Line... Good Information but Horrible Service.

My wife ordered this book through me and read it on my Kindle. She was amazed by the amount of information Robin put into this book. If you're going to start a home-based bookkeeping business, this is a must have.
